Are Your Brakes Noisy?

One of the most common signs something is wrong with the brakes -- and specifically the brake pads -- is when you start to hear noises every time you hit the pedal. The brake pads play a crucial role within the braking system, as they protect against metal-on-metal contact and help create the friction needed to stop your vehicle properly. Without them, the system would experience significant damage and you wouldn’t be able to stop as quickly as you’d like. Do you hear noises every time you brake? If so, here’s what they mean and what you need to do:

Squeaking or Squealing -- When these sounds occur, that indicates the brake pads are at minimal thickness. In the near future, your brake pads will wear out, leaving the metal calipers exposed. Although your car is technically fine, we recommend service as soon as you hear it to avoid any metal-on-metal contact from occurring. Grinding -- If you hear this sound, that lets you know the brake pads are fully worn. At this point, the metal calipers are clamping on the metal brake disc, which will lead to serious damage. Also, you won’t be able to stop as quickly due to the lack of proper friction, so we suggest brake pad replacement immediately.
